WHEN I STARTED .....

.... this blog it was for 2 reasons ... these were  1. To allow me to join this wonderful community and have  a platform to share my sewing .. and 2. To allow my daughter and her partner .. who had just left England and gone to Australia ... to keep up to date with my sewing x

BOTH of these aims have been achieved xx I sort of thought I MIGHT get a few followers beyond my family x WELL last Sunday I quietly and amazingly (to me anyway!!) I hit

                                               100

followers!! I cannot tell you how amazed I was xx

SO for the last week I have been keeping a tally of those who commented on my twitterings x I did only put names in once .. no matter how many comments were left xx THEN to-day I enlisted this young man ..


(oldest grandson .. the little one is in Australia visiting relatives x) We put the names in an empty ice cream tub .. no clean hat available!!..



and he drew out a name ...



Rosemary blogs over at www.knittingquilter.blogspot.com ,I have contacted her and to-morrow her parcel will be winging its way to Massachusetts (hope that's how you spell it!! lol x) When I know she has received it I will post a picture of her gifts xx

Thank you one and all for your wonderful support and comments xx This has been good fun x I may just do it again in the future xx

When my son turned my paper diary into a blog, I had no idea at all other than sharing with my kids what I was up to. Having anyone at all comment was a big surprise. Enjoy all those people who are enjoying you.

Your blog was such a good idea and I know it is read and appreciated by your children here, and all your Blog followers too. Great idea re the "raffle" and congrats Rosemary. It has been, and will continue to be, a great way to keep up with what you are up to in your sewing, your family and your life. Thank you Diane xxx
